"In whole there are very few..." Australia and Oceania Warnings Or Dangers Tip by rovnguy


In whole there are very few things on these islands that can hurt you, but there are a few that you need to be aware of. There are three critters in these islands that can cause you some grief if you do not pay attention where you are walking, are not careful and provoke or threaten them. The coconut crab can take a finger or two and the brown tree snake is venomous. The sea urchin will leave a very painful wound in your foot if you step on one of them.
